• Did you knew that you could use the middle click button of your mouse to quickly close a chat tab in Movim?

    Movim is designed to be simple to use for everyone. However there are some small useful features that your were maybe not aware of yet. Here's another one!

    Share all the web pages in Movim

    Like most of the other social networks we wanted to allow you to share all your favorite web pages in one click within Movim. We created the Universal share button as a simple and definitive solution to do that.

    You can find this button in the right column of the News page. Just drag & drop it in your browser toolbar and use it on each page that you would like to share, that's it!

    When you will click it Movim will automagically create a blank post and prefill the shared link and preview card with the website that you were on. Et voilà :)

    • Migration of the Jappix XMPP services to Movim

      After some talks between the Movim and Jappix maintainers, it has been decided to migrate the XMPP services of jappix.com to those of movim.eu. Please note that only some of these services will be migrated. In fact only the following XMPP services will stay available: all the jappix.com accounts; the chatrooms service, muc.jappix.com (planned); the PubSub service, pubsub.jappix.com (planned); The registration system of jappix.com has been disabled and the anonymous authentication service, anonymous.jappix.com, has been definitly closed. This migration will take several days, maybe weeks, to give us enough time to stabilize and do all the required checks on the new platform. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us on our XMPP chatroom: movim@conference.movim.eu. Migration des services XMPP de Jappix vers Movim Suite à de nombreux échanges entre les mainteneurs du projet Movim et de la plateforme Jappix, il a été décidé de migrer les services XMPP offerts par jappix.com vers ceux de movim.eu. Veuillez noter que seule une partie des services seront migrés. Ici il est uniquement question de la partie XMPP incluant : l'ensemble des comptes de jappix.com ; le service de salons de discussion muc.jappix.com (en préparation) ; le service PubSub pubsub.jappix.com (en préparation). Sachez également que les inscriptions sur jappix.com ne seront désormais plus possibles et que le service d'authentification anonyme, anonymous.jappix.com, a été fermé. Cette migration risque de prendre quelques jours, voire quelques semaines, afin de s'assurer de la stabilité de la nouvelle plateforme.

  • A few months after Movim 0.9 - Tchouri, here comes a new release of Movim, the decentralized social network! Labeled 0.10, it offers many major improvements both in the project core and in the features offered to end users.

    This new release confirms Movim's position as a serious alternative to other messaging solutions such as Telegram, WhatsApp or Slack. Movim’s goal is to finally deliver a free (as in free speech) communication platform, built with ease-of-use and pleasantness in mind, on top of very reliable standards such as XMPP and Atom, already widely deployed and tested.

    Indeed, instead of creating yet-another closed network as many other projects (whether free or not) have done before, Movim uses the XMPP protocol and actively takes part in improving it.

    Articles management

    Articles management has been a bit reworked:

    • you can now assign tags with accents and special chars to your piece of news
    • public articles will be accessible throughout the whole XMPP network, not just the Movim pod where it was published
    • the « News » page now displays latest public articles from the whole network

    Furthermore, tags and comments of deleted articles are now correctly cleaned (on the XMPP network but also in the Movim local cache database). Pictures management inside content of articles was a little bit reworked as well.

    Instant Messaging

    One of the main goals of this new release was to improve user experience and add some new features to the IM side of the project.

    Last Message Correction

    In this release, Movim implements XEP-0308 : Last Message Correction allowing users to correct the previous message using the ↑ key. This modification is compatible with many clients such as Conversations or Gajim.

    Stickers!

    Stickers support has been added to the project once again via the extension XMPP XEP-0231 : Bits of Binary allowing Movim users to send stickers to other clients such as Pidgin or Gajim.

    To celebrate this new feature, two sets of Creative Commons-licensed stickers have been created exclusively for the project.

    A racoon-themed set of 16 stickers drawn by Corine Tea (CC BY-SA), and a ZeMarmot movie set of 10 stickers drawn by Aryeom Han (CC BY-SA 4.0).

    The idea with these sets is to promote projects that share our values while offering people to use and share nice free stickers with their contacts.

    Thanks to the artists for their work! If you want to add your own stickers to the project, do not hesitate to contact us (room: movim@conference.movim.eu). :)

    And many other things...

    Along with the small user interface fixes and other user experience tweaks, some other changes have also been introduced.

    You can now edit the chat rooms configuration after adding them. You are also notified of new messages published in those chat rooms.

    Some new emojis have been added to the existing ones ;)

    A new algorithm for displaying chat bubbles now allows us to save some space by grouping messages sent by the same person within the same minute.

    Elsewhere in the project

    A new version of the Android client (available in the Playstore and in F-Droid) has been released following a redo of the notification system.

    The desktop client, based on Electron, has also been released in a new version. For now, it has only been packaged for Debian and Ubuntu, but we welcome all packaging effort for any other distributions or OS.

    More generally, the whole project interface has been through a redo to be correctly displayed on small screen.

    Be also advised that all Movim clients can be configured to work with non-official project instances. It means that if you set up your project's own instance (or pod), you'll be able to add it manually through the client loading screen.

    Global search

    In one click or using the Ctrl M shortcut you can now launch the new global search panel. It will allow you to search instantly through your articles and contacts.

    This version has been named after this new feature; Holmes is indeed the family name of a respectable private eye but also the name of one of our solar system comet.

    Languages

    Thanks again to all the translators who have done some incredible work translating Movim to so many languages. The project is now (almost) completely translated to French, Polish, Danish, German, Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese, Hebrew, Czech, Italian… and many other!

    Don't hesistate to come and help us on the translating tool Transifex ;)

    Performances, stability and memory

    Many improvements have been brought to the daemon which was introduced in the last version. It comes with improved performances but more importantly a noticeable decrease of memory consumption thanks to the sharing of some librairies between subprocesses (with a gain of more than 5Mo per session!).

    An important bug concerning Websockets handling which often led to an early shutdown of the session has been fixed. If you use Movim daily, this session can now stay open for several days or weeks!

    Interface and administration

    Administrators can now specify their own XMPP server when signin up into their instance. This is also part of the will of not limiting users wishing to set up their own instances without depending on the official servers.

    More generally, some parts (like story heads and lists) of the interface have been reworked to make browsing through Movim easier. The same has been done for the article style which now offers a better rendering of some HTML tags (like paragraphs, titles, quotes, or code extracts).

    File upload

    Some small improvements have been brought to the file uploading functionnality (which again is based on XMPP, XEP-0363: HTTP File Upload).

    Upload errors are now clearer and big images are resized and compressed on the fly.

    In short

    Initially thought as a minor update of the 0.9 version which had introduced an important rework, this release has finally turned into its own version: the 0.10.

    The heart of the project can now be considered as stable (even if there is still changes down the hill to optimize and improve Movim). Future versions will most likely look like this one in terms of content: better integration of the existing in the user environments, new functionalities which will complete the existing ones and better overall coherence.

    What's coming in Movim 0.11

    The project is still going strong, and the main lines of the futur version are already shaping up.

    One of the key feature of this version will be the improvement of information sharing inside Movim but also with its environment. For example, we plan to allow article sharing with contacts and chat room invites in only a few clicks.

    This version also marks the big return of Jingle in the project (which had dispappeared some versions ago following troubles concerning support and stability). Audio calls will most likely be implemented first. Some tests are also planned for the Android app.

    Integration with desktops client for Windows and MacOS will also among our development efforts. The main idea behind that being to be able to be present on a maximum of OS with large audience.

    Other surprises will also be coming in this new version. We'll tell you more in a coming article, stay tuned ;)

    Thanks to jaes, Christine Ho and all the other translators of this releasenote. The original article in French was published on LinuxFr.org!
